Development of a Precision Medicine Bioinformatics Tool for Cognitive Outcome Prediction after Intracerebral Hemorrhage
Mentored by Jonathan Rosand, MD & Alessandro Biffi, MD and Brandon Westover, MD, PhD
Jonathan’s co-mentors are Jonathan Rosand, MD, MSC, Alessandro Biffi, MD, and Brandon Westover, MD, PhD at MGH. The goal of Jonathan’s research is to better understand the relationship between intracerebral hemorrhage and long-term cognitive impairment. More specifically, he will be using natural language processing and machine learning to combine neuroimaging, genetic, laboratory, and clinical data into a precision medicine tool that can be used at the bedside to predict individuals’ cognitive outcomes one year after intracerebral hemorrhage. After residency, Jonathan will pursue neurocritical care fellowship.

Investigating the therapeutic mechanism of cannabidiol in Dravet Syndrome
Mentored By Stelios Smirnakis, MD, PhD
Amr's mentor is Dr. Stelios Smirnakis. Using in vivo 2-photon imaging with voltage indicators as well as spatial transcriptomics, his research aims to understand cell-type-specific effects of cannabidiol in a mouse model of Dravet syndrome. After residency, Amr will be pursuing a clinical epilepsy fellowship at BWH.
